Mutant soap opera 'Mutazione' rated for Switch release

Mutant madness!

A mutant soap opera where small-town gossip meets the supernatural...

MUTAZIONE is an adventure game where the juicy personal drama is just as important as the high-stakes adventure part of the story.

Explore the community as 15-year-old Kai as she travels to the strange and secretive community of Mutazione to care for her ailing grandfather, Nonno.

Make new friends; plant musical gardens; attend BBQs, band nights and boat trips; and embark on a final spiritual journey to save everyone from the strange darkness at the heart of it all.

Over 100 years ago, the meteor “Moon Dragon” struck a tropical holiday resort. Most of the inhabitants perished, while those who survived began to show strange mutations... The rescue missions quickly retreated, and those who remained in the mutating environment founded the small and isolated community of Mutazione.

Fast-forward to modern day, where you play as 15-year-old Kai as she travels to Mutazione to help nurse her dying grandfather back to health. But things aren’t as simple as they seem... Nonno has other plans for Kai; secrets and betrayals simmer under the friendly community’s surface; and there’s a creepy bird-like figure who keeps on appearing in Kai’s dreams.

They can survive an apocalyptic meteor strike, but can they survive their small-town drama?

FEATURE LIST

• A lush, hand-illustrated world to explore
• Ensemble cast of loveable mutant characters
• A story with unpredictable dramatic twists and turns
• Gardens to customize for unique relaxing musical soundscapes
• Seed sharing - send and receive rare and unusual seeds with your friends

We know that Mutazione is coming to Switch thanks to an ESRB listing. With the rating popping up recently, it's likely we'll hear an official announcement any day now.

GameFly lists Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues for Switch release

BOW TO YOUR SENSEI!

When it comes to leaking reveals of upcoming games, nobody beats GameFly. The company has been 100% spot-on with their reveals, putting up listings long before other retailers. They're back at the reveal game once again, and it looks like Switch owners have some karate action heading their way.

Take a look at the NBA 2K21 North American cover art, microSD card/download required for retail version

It has some balls

We've already shared the European cover for NBA 2K21 on Switch, and now we have a look at the North American cover. It's pretty much exactly the same, minus the placement of the microSD card/download required label, and the age rating.

That microSD card/download required warning will hopefully catch the eye of anyone grabbing the game at retail. Even if you go with the physical version of the game, the internal storage space on Switch won't be enough to hold the data the game needs to function.

Thanks to SteelDiver for the heads up!

Soaring Penguin Press bringing selection of digital comics to InkyPen

Quite comical

Soaring Penguin Press have agreed a contract to provide their titles to Inky Pen, a digital platform that uses the Nintendo Switch.

InkyPen is an all-you-can-read comic and manga reading service on Nintendo Switch, developed by a Norwegian startup company. The company has large goals to get the best publishers on board and provide a great range of content for InkyPen readers.

“It’s a terrific platform,” says publisher John Anderson. “You can use the Switch as a personal reader, but – and this is cool! – you can also throw the comic onto your tv, so everyone can read it at the same time.”

Says InkyPen CEO, Ronan Huggard: “Soaring Penguin have an exceptional variety of diverse content with the common thread being great stories and quality. InkyPen is proud to have them on board and excited to share these excellent stories with our readers”

The first titles released on Inky Pen will be Breaks Volume One and Breaks 2: Truth & Dare by Emma Vieceli and Malin Rydén

Another round of unlabeled Switch game SKUs hit GameStop

Here we go again!

Here we go again, gang. There's been rumors of a Nintendo Direct flying around the internet this week, and now we have GameStop giving people a reason to get riled up.

As you can see above, a round of unlabeled Switch game SKUs have hit GameStop's computer systems. This goes along with a notice that was sent to GameStop from Nintendo that talks about upcoming Retail Integration Services maintenance. Is this all going to amount to something, or will it just lead to heartbreak? Let's cross fingers and toes and hope something good comes of it.
